Fun For All The Family
We always recommend planning your route, although it may not always be possible it will be more enjoyable if you can avoid busy roads and use greenways or cycle paths.
Why not take a look at our ‘Secret Birmingham Heritage Cycle Routes’ enjoy a self guided tour of heritage sites across Birmingham using bike friendly routes including quieter roads and some of the city’s most beautiful and interesting green spaces.
After a bit of practise you could even think about incorporating a bit of this fun into the school run. Start slowly by choosing to cycle one or two days a week.Find A Traffic Free Route Secret Birmingham Cycling To School
